Video award winners make compelling series on Inuit culture

by Nancy Baele

The Ottawa Citizen, May 25, 1994

Norman Cohn and Zacharias Kunuk teamed up to produce the mini-series, Nunavut (Our Land), depicting life in 1945 Igloolik. The series is remarkable for its radically different cultural perspective and with its improvised dialogue and slow pacing, questions the contrived circumstances of television convention.
